Biden: Court Document From 1996 Corroborates Sexual Assault Accuser’s Claims

By

A court document from 1996 has been discovered and shows that his accuser, former staffer Tara Reade, told her husband about the harassment when it happened, The Daily Caller News Foundation reported.

The document, penned by Reade’s ex-husband Theodore Dronen was obtained by The Tribune and the evidence is damning.

It says that Reade told her ex-husband about “a problem she was having at work regarding sexual harassment, in U.S. Senator Joe Biden’s office.”

Dronen has become the seventh person to confirm that Reade told them about the allegations against Biden.

“Tara and I ended our relationship over two decades ago under difficult circumstances,” he said when reached for comment.

“I am not interested in reliving that chapter of my life. I wish Tara well, and I have nothing further to say.”

Per the DCNF:

Dronen had filed for the divorce and was contesting Reade’s restraining order against him, the court documents show, according to the Tribune. He testified that he and Reade met when they were working for different Congress members in Washington, D.C. in 1993.

Reade’s ex-husband wrote in the filing that Reade told him about the alleged sexual harassment in Biden’s office early on in their relationship.

Reade told him that she “eventually struck a deal with the chief of staff of the Senator’s office and left her position,” Dronen wrote. He stated that he was “sympathetic to her needs” and allowed her to stay at his apartment while she struggled financially.

He added that “it was obvious that this event had a very traumatic effect on (Reade), and that she is still sensitive and effected [sic] by it today.”
